First paramount message: cleaning lady
During my seventh grade in choden school,in the year 2005,our enlish teacher,mam sonam choden gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had a breezed through the questions,until I read the last one:’’what is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?”
Obiviously this would be some kinda joke,i had seen her cleaning several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her forties,but how would I know her name?i handed the paper to my mam,leaving the last question blank.just before the class comes to an end ,one of my witty friends asked mam wether the last question would be counted towards the English continuous marks.
‘’absolutely’’,said by ma englsih tutor.”in your life,u will meet different kinds of people.all are significant,one should not ignore and neglect it.they deserve your attention and care,there won’t be any loss for greeting ,”kuzuzangpo,ga doe boe yoe?”(how have you been?)''
I have never forgotten that lesson,at times,I also learned her name was kezang.
Second important lesson:Give response to the one who is ineed.
One night,when I was returning from phuentsholing town towards my college,at 9.30pm,an older woman was standing on the side of the teenkilo tryng to bear heavy rainfall.she was desperately needed a ride.soaking wet,she decided to flag down the next car.
My cab driver din’t respond to that desperately awaiting woman eventhough I was alone in that cab.i requested the cab driver to stop the vehicle and reached her to her desired destiny.she seemed to be in a big hurry.Towards goenpa,she stopped the vehicle ,offered him,NU.500/- and wrote address of cab driver in a hurry and went away.
A week later I got to print my assignment,I was to visit gangotri,jaigoan for cheaper printing rate,on the way towards jaigoan,I met the cab driver which I rode to his vehicle to other day in times of heavy rain,he recognized me and was coming forward to share his happiness of receiving nokia branded cell phone and a special note from the woman,here goes,’’thank you so much for helping me on the way of teenkilo the other night.the rain drenched not only my clothes but also my spirits.because of you I was able to make it to my dyiing mother’s bedside just she passed away.god bless you for helping me and unselfishly helping others, your passenger”.
Third mportant lesson:to be contd.
